Congratulations, Dr. James!

PSC Spine Fusion
Congratulations to Dr. Aaron James and the James Lab on discovering the signal that drives stem cells to form new bones! In Dr. James' own words, "The mechanisms by which progenitor cells commit to adopt a bone cell (osteoblast) or fat cell (adipocyte) fate are not well understood. Leveraging prior transcriptome studies, our group identified the matricellular protein WISP-1 as integral to this decision making process. WISP-1 is highly expressed in the perivascular niche, positively regulating bone formation upon cell transplantation. Overall, our findings suggest that WISP-1 signaling upregulation may be of future benefit in cell therapy mediated bone tissue engineering, for the healing of bone defects or other orthopaedic applications."
